About the opportunity
St Mary and All Saints is a 1.5-form entry, 3–11 school. This is a fabulous opportunity for an aspiring leader looking to extend their experience of leading a phase, or beginning it, in a reasonably challenging but highly rewarding, supportive and well-resourced environment.

As a key member of the leadership team, you will ensure the highest standards of teaching and learning are met. We want you to support our school in providing every child with the opportunity to raise their aspirations and realise and achieve their full potential.

Now is a great time for you, as an enthusiastic and growing leader, to extend your experience of school leadership. Working alongside our new but experienced principal you will be leading your KS1 colleagues who are committed and strive daily to improve pupil outcomes. Partnership working and collaboration are central to our school.

As an academy within The White Horse Federation of schools, we benefit from sharing resources and support in every aspect of school life. We are an improving, multicultural school in the centre of Reading, yet adjacent to wetlands, a river and we even have our own woodland.
